1000 local figures in Daraa launch a national reconciliation initiative

Daraa, SANA – A local initiative for national reconciliation in Daraa was launched on Sunday by a thousand of locals and senior figures from the southern province.

The initiative calls upon people who have taken up arms against the state to lay down their weapons so that they can have their legal status settled and get back to normal life, according to a statement issued on the occasion.

The initiative includes forming a working group of members of the People’s Assembly, municipal councils and popular figures from Daraa province to work with the government parties concerned to achieve reconciliations in the areas where the people are willing.

Local committees also will be formed to communicate with the senior figures in every town and village where gunmen are active in order to work on making arrangements to restore security and safety to the areas in question.
